This project started out about two years ago as something to keep me sane and calm whilst trying to get my two little girls to sleep. I spent hours and hours sitting and stitching as they battled and raged against sleep. Thankfully we have now passed this phase and I have been slowly but surely adding these little hexies together whenever I have a few minutes. I am aiming for a lap size quilt and I am not too far off. My husband says I am mad but hey I still think it is keeping me sane!

Part of expat life is the steady flow of people leaving and arriving. It keeps you on your toes and means that you meet loads of different people. It is also an excuse to make quilts for friends (we all know quilts make great leaving presents). One of my good friends has just moved to the US and I wanted her to have a quilt, but with only two weeks notice it had to be a quick one! She loves aqua and teals so I went for a very cool colour palette, mixing teals, aquas and greys.
It is now in its new home in the US.
To quilt it I did an all over stipple. It was quick and easy and I really love the texture it created.
